Grand Piano Series Presents Schaghajegh Nosrati at the Gulf Theater
January 11 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$30 – $40
This exciting program juxtaposes the very bookends of western music: Bach and Bartok. Opening with the pure genius of J.S. Bach, we witness the development of the dance genre in the hands of the master of church music. On the other end of the spectrum, we have Bartok with his exotic evocations of the sound of nature. We can trace the evolution of keyboard music from Bach to Bartok as we listen to this concert. The program also features the beloved music of Schumann and Haydn.
Bach: Partita No. 1 in B flat Major BWV 825
Schumann: Waldszenen op. 82
Haydn: Sonata in E flat Major Hob XVI:52
Bartok: Piano Sonata Sz. 80
